This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

2005 Pax Kobler

Drinking at home.

2005 Pax Syrah Kobler Family Vineyard - drank 20 minutes after decanting.  Definitely gamey and leather notes, with ripe fruit as well as savory notes on the palate.  Served a little warm so this was a little alcoholic and hot going down the back of the throat.  There was a hint of barnyard with bacon fat, pretty fragrant and reminds one of Côte-Rôtie.  This makes sense because the syrah is co-fermented with 7% viognier.  About 50 minutes after decanting this was more jammy but definitely cool fruit with eucalyptus.  Good acidity throughout.  Drinking beautifully right now.
